(Scroll down for video) People in Canada, freaked out and are afraid to use tap water after getting pink liquid instead of water in their kitchen sinks and toilets.

The incident began on Monday in Onoway.

Vicki Veldhuyzen Van Zanten said that she got a call from her neighbor, asking if water was coming out of the sink because in her home, she only got pink liquid.

Zanten then quickly relied that pink liquid was coming out of her kitchen sink instead of water. Zanten’s young daughter then shouted for her mother to come to the bathroom.

The girl showed her mother that the toilet was filled with a pink liquid. As the day went on, hundreds of people, complained about the situation.

Onoway Mayor Dale Krasnow said on Tuesday, that the water is safe to drink.

Krasnow blamed the discoloration of the water on potassium permanganate, which was used to wash the filters at the water treatment plant.

The town drained its water reservoir and refilled it with clear water.

Krasnow apologized to residents, saying that he should have communicated with the public earlier in order to avoid the panic.
